“Your life is so dull, I mean there’s no drama at all! What’s the meaning of your life?” These words kept echoing in my mind as I walked down the street returning from my college. I am a shy, dull girl and hardly anyone likes me! Apart from my parents and my younger sister no one loves me in this world! Those words were said by my so called friend Radhika in my college and Swati supporting her. They both had boyfriends and there had been many ups and downs in their relationship. And I having no boyfriend or any “drama” in my life was left out. And today they taunted me. I mean which friend does that? They are not my real friends! Two sided friends as I can say.. my thoughts were interrupted and I felt a force pulling me towards itself. And after some seconds I realised that I had fallen down, my eyes were closed in fear. As I slowly opened my eyes, I found a boy on top of me, he was staring at me like hell, I could even feel his breath. His deep hazel brown eyes which attracted me towards him. We both kept staring at each other for a while, I was really lost in him. He was such a beautiful creation of God, I had almost fallen for him. Actually remove the word almost, I had really fallen for him. There were butterflies in my stomach indicating that I had really fallen for him. He moved his hand and touched my hair which had fallen on my face because of the sudden pull. He slowly tucked them behind to get a clear view of my face. I felt shivers run through my whole body.
I realised my position by his touch and quickly moved to get up. He also got up quickly feeling embarrassed. He started a conversation
‘I am sorry actually a bus was coming towards you, I just saved you from the bus otherwise…’
‘Its ok, I understand’ I smiled saying this.
‘Thanks.. so friends?’ He forwarded his hand. I was surprised! How can someone want me to be their friend! And especially a boy! I hardly make girl friends because of my nature, but now he was someone who himself wanted to become my friend! Was I dreaming? I was lost in my thoughts when he waved his hand in front of my face. I came back to senses and placed my hand in his hand and smiled. He smiled too. I felt as if I was the best person in this world as he made me his friend, the one I loved made me his friend! I was the happiest person on earth!
‘So lets walk, let me something about you.’ He said smilingly. But I was just lost in his eyes and his smile which was the best smile ever! I came back to my senses and said,
‘I am Suman Tiwari, studying in Rising Star college, in 2nd year. What about you?’
‘Ohh really? I am also in the same college final year! By the way I am Shravan Malhotra.’ He smiled again. I was surprised that he was also in my college, more than being surprised I was very happy that now I could often see him.
‘See you are again lost in your thoughts!’ he said with a cute pout. I laughed at his cuteness.
‘Why are you laughing now?’ He asked with curiosity. ‘Nothing’ I said controlling my laughter. Then we walked down the street together talking about random stuffs, the college, the teachers, studies and all that stuff. After meeting him I almost forgot about those words which were bothering me some time back. I left my sorrows aside. We went laughing chatting loving each other’s company. For the first time in my life I had made a friend or I must say a real perfect friend who praised me.
‘Here’s my house. Meet you tomorrow in the college, Bye..’ I said forcefully as I didn’t want to leave him and go.
He smiled and greeted bye!
I entered my house very happy. Preeti my little sister asked me “Di.. you are smiling so much today, what happened?”
“I am in love” I said in a flow. “What? You are in love? Who is that guy?”
I realised what I just said and felt embarrassed, “I will freshen up and come” I tried avoiding any further talk. “Di.. don’t try to avoid me! Tell me everything please “ she said with a pout. And I could not see her like that “Ok I will tell you but please let me freshen up first” I assured her. “Thank you di..” She hugged me in excitement. I hugged her back.
Some time later I came back after changing my clothes. She excitedly came towards me and dragged me to the bed and made me sit on the bed. “Now tell me everything in detail” I told her everything what happened on the road and ended up blushing. She hugged me tightly and said “I am so happy for you di..”
It was morning and I felt sun rays disturbing my sleep coming through the only window of my room. I got up and today I was very excited about going to my college not like every other day where I half heartedly went to my college. I took a bath and wore a blue crop top with plain black jeans. I applied my lip gloss and kajal and tied my hair in a high pony tail… No this was not my daily routine, I only used to apply my gloss as I didn’t matter much how I looked. But today it mattered to me the most! I quickly took my bag and rushed out of my house. And luckily I got a rickshaw quickly. Never in my life I had been so excited to go to the college, it was all because of him! In some time I reached my college and soon the lectures began. I was eagerly waiting for the break time. And finally the bell rang, it was the break time. I quickly picked up my tiffin box and started moving out when I was stopped by my friend no actually so called friend Swati. “Where are you going in a hurry today? And you look happy, anything special?” I said nothing and went out leaving her confused.
I quickly ran up to the floor where final year students had their classes. I searched for him and finally found him smiling, ahh.. that smile.. I moved forward but as I walked up to him, he hugged a girl. All my happiness was now shattered! How could he do this? He had a girlfriend! I had tears in my eyes, they were flowing like hell from my eyes, the one whom I loved so much was not mine. He was still hugging her, and I felt a pain in my heart. Finally he broke the hug and saw me, I tried to avoid his gaze and looked back and started moving down towards my class. “Suman!” he called out. I avoided him and ran down quickly. I went straight into the washroom and luckily there was no one inside. I cried my heart out. This was probably the worst day of my life.
